Flag Day... well, 'twas the nite before...

'Twas the nite before Flag Day
and all through the house
not a puppy was stirrin',

Which meant I had nuttin'
to do but press a button...

8 May '11

Strength and dignity are her clothing,

And she smiles at the future.

She opens her mouth in Wisdom,

And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.

She looks well to the ways of her household,

And does not eat the bread of idleness.

Her children rise up and bless her;

Her husband also, and he praises her saying,

"Many daughters have done nobly,

But you excel them all."

Bless God, God bless ALL Mothers.

Redeeming the Time

Being a nation of shooters, America has a long standing tradition called 'competition'.

Way back when-ago, as Ye Old Furt pointed out a while back, there was a competition called a 'blanket shoot', wherein each shooter recieved his choice of award from those piled atop a blanket.

More recently, there are the in-house/shooting gallery events, usually around 50 feet, or less in some instances. Also are the outdoor events such as CMP and Appleseed programs (though Appleseed isn't technically a competition), and other sports as Steel Plates, IDPA, and the fun steel chicken challenges.

Since the Pony Express died off, replaced by the railroad, which was displaced by the airplane and par Avion, there's a competition known as 'postal matches'.

Now we have a new kind of competition that sounds like fun and challenging. (Not to mention, an opportunity to get to better know our on-line friends.)

ASM of Random Acts of Patriotism and Borepatch have come up with the newest fangled idea: Digital Matches.

The idea: download a specified target (link found at ASM's) and follow the directions (yet to be specified by Borepatch), and Email your results to either gent (yet to be determined). The challenge: to get out, have fun shooting, see how well you can best your past performance each shoot, and have fun as a group.

I've already claimed the position I get to shoot, so no one else can have it. I get to shoot prone, off a bipod with scope. Everyone else has to shoot off hand, standing on their head, one handed, sighting with their weak eye.

Now, go read, download, shoot, and have fun.

UPDATE: The time-line is May 31 to have targets sent to ASM or posted on your blog with link-back to ASM. Distance, 25 yards, off-hand (standing), no slings, sights of your choice- let ASM know which/what kind.

Bless God, God bless,


PS: anyone got any ideas what's up with blogger? No spel-chek; no justify; pix don't want to load; doesn't like me (c'mon- I'm a likeable guy! Well, kind'a.)

Ho-Hum... now they're claiming to've killed Osama Bin Laden. I was wondering why my world was so changed when I awoke this morning. So wonderful to have awakened and seen green grass and hear the birds singing and know the entire world was at peace at last, never to hear the sound of gunfire or talk of war ever again. And the lion and lamb were sitting in the breakfast nook having coffee and chatting about how they were going to picnic later at the viper den and play some checkers with the wolves.

Like I believe any of the above.

Really, I do. All of it.

I was here, I should know.

OK- how do I really feel about this 'big' news today? I caught the news right away last night when the MSM blew in the door and started bragging up the Dark Lord's wonderful signing of the hall pass for the SpecOps to make the hit. My first reaction was, "He's screwing with us. This didn't happen."

I still don't think it happened. Something doesn't ring true about this, but damned if I know what it is. Where is the Corpus Delecti? (I think that's the term.) They buried him at sea? I can see the SpecOps finding good humor in this, but not really swallowing it.

More likely, I think it's a media event being used to encourage a serious attack somewhere in the world, most likely here in the U.S., so the Dark Lord can initiate martial law upon us.

That's what I'm thinking about it.

Now, if you've been feeling a bit stagnant in your training lately- doing the same old Ho-hum routine day after day, month after month, and want to do something a bit different and beneficial to yourself, try this... (O'Blogger ain't letting me embed the code, so you're just gonna have to hit the linky thingy. Apologies.)

Really worth your time doing, this will work all your major muscle groups, make you think you're going to die- if you give it total attention and dedicated drive. About the only thing I'd do differently is shooting from around the door jamb rather than teach myself to stand in the middle of the door while shooting. Notice, also, the first shooter does a reload standing in the open- big no-no. Don't train yourself to do things you don't want in your memory banks.
Try this- don't wait. We may well be needing these skills more soon than we think.

Bless God, God bless.

Think about this...

"...A plot is currently in motion to overthrow the government of the United States. It has already begun and has moved forward in Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin but more states are waiting to act. Shooting incidents and bombings are planned and some may already have been carried out. A major false flag terror attack on the United States is expected, followed by states openly defying the federal government, suspending the constitution and declaring a joint “state of emergency.”

Those involved are told 5 Supreme Court justices will back them up, paralyzing the United States..."


As previously noted, I used to wear a tinfoil hat, not wanting to believe how bad my country's government has become. Two years ago I'd probably have sluffed this off like a deuce when playing 500.

Now, there's little I don't put past this puppet government or the master pulling the strings. After all, if I am to be true to my philosophical Christian beliefs, I have to believe what God says is true and will come to pass. This does fall into line with His Word in so many ways, IMNSHO at least.

Read it all and make up your mind. Either way, we have to decide who and what we will serve.

Bless God, God bless.

"It's Two-Thousand-Eleven..."

"...Do you wonder where the Dodge Durango has been? "Touring Europe..." Nope, I ain't wondering at all. It's been acting just like every other welfare fraud: living the high life like the current POS in the White house and wasting taxpayer money. Why anyone would spend hard-earned money to support Government Motors is beyond me.

When in the Course...

"...of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected then with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to separation.

The history of the present President of the United States is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.
...He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained, and when suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them...
...He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only...
...He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures...
...He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers...
...He has made judges dependant on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and payment of their salaries...
...He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat our sustenance...
...He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his consent to their acts of pretended legislation...
...For quartering large bodies of foreign troops among us; For protecting them, by a mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states...
...For imposing taxes upon us without our consent;
...For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury;
...For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments;
...For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring himself invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatever...
...He has abdicated government here by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us...
...He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us...
...In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms; our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A president whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people."
(From the American Declaration of Independence.)

And once again he has displayed his utter arrogance in abrogating our Constitution and laws in declaring the courts to no longer hear cases concerning immoral homosexual marriages; by invoking and encouraging SEIU thuggery toward citizens legally declaring their desires, not only in Wisconsin, but nation wide. (I rest my case.)

Which proves he will act in every way he can to bypass the Legislative and Judicial branches of our government in efforts to create his tyrannical rule of our nation. How long before we have lost every Constitutional right we have? Every one of our Inalienable Rights.

Can you spell 'treason'?

Bless God, God bless.

Riddle me this...

... there aren't a tremendous number of people within my 'social circle'. Still, the majority- probably due to the area in which I live- are pretty liberal in their thinking.
By liberal, I mean they vote democrat and belong to and vociferously support unions- and obviously vote the way their union tells them.
So right away, I'm at a disadvantage in most conversations and need apply some really 'off the cuff logic' when talking with them ('talking' usually meaning I'm out-numbered and out-shouted on nearly every topic).
Getting to the riddle me part...
A recent discussion about the rioting going on in Egypt and our American part in it, brought up the topic of oil and how, if the Suez is closed or shut off from transporting oil, then we're going to be suffering some serious price increases in gas prices- of course, everyone was whining about gas already being $3.20 a gallon and hurting their budget. One suggested an answer to the problem would be to send American troops in to protect the area.
Curious about this response, I asked the person what was the difference in our troops fighting for oil in Egypt as opposed to his view of why we fought in Vietnam- which, according to this Conscientious Objector person, was that we shouldn't have been in 'Nam because it was just a war over oil and big business.
Needless to say, his response was to change the subject.
Pushing the issue, I had to ask him to riddle me this: "Why is it the people complaining most about our fighting wars to maintain our oil supply are the ones complaining most about the rising cost of their oil products?"
Now, let me carry this question a bit farther into our daily lives.
"Why is it the ones complaining most about the high cost of food are the environmentalists on the front lines of halting the use of insecticides, fertilizers, and oil-powered machinery, in the production of food?"
Further: "Why is it the unions sympathize with tree huggers to prevent logging and oil production- and thereby employment to Americans- in 'wilderness areas'?"
And, of course, there's the great debate today: "Why is it the tree hugging Goreball Warming weenies who're bitching and pissing most about how cold and snowy it is this year?"
Got to stop now- there's no defending idiots and banging their heads together will only give you a headache.

Bless God, God bless.

LOL, got to chuckle about this Goreball warming- though this hasn't been the coldest winter in MN history, it's in the top 50. Still, when you think about it- cold like this...

... is really only relative- especially when you have a warm relative to cuddle with.

Really- just think how much warmer it'll feel in July when the humidity is in the 90 percentile and air temp will be 90 as well. Dad always used to say, "I can always put enough clothing on to be warm, never could take enough off to be cool." I go with that sentiment- though if I could have my druthers, I'druther go nekky all the time. (But I'd have to say the neighbors may get a little disjointed if I did.) Not that they can see me through the trees, but one may decide to stop by and have some coffee.

Speaking of which- coffee and a good book- or some good blogs- to read is a fine way to trash a really cold day. So saying, let me thank all you bloggers who do such a wonderful job keeping me entertained these cold winter days. It's appreciated.

I'm surprised by the weather report tonight- single digits in northern Mexico- that should keep a few illegals from crossing the border, at least. Or freeze their carcasses before they get here, which is just as good as not coming.

Now if I can just get Mayberry to appreciate a good, cold day. (wink wink)

Be safe, stay warm, bless God, God bless.
